Wall Street capped the most recent trading session with a positive tone, enabled by a better than expected jobs report.
The key averages were restrained by the continued decline in the value of Apple stock, weighing mostly on the Nasdaq but also on the S&P 500.
For the week, the Dow rose 130 points, or 1 percent.
The S&P gained about 2 points, while the Nasdaq fell 1.1 percent.
With time running out on 2012, the key averages are up between 8 and 14 percent, year-to-date.
